Frog Legs: Ragtime Era Favorites
This Kazoomzoom.com collection focuses on ragtime, an American music style from more than 100 years ago, a long time before the invention of CDs and iPods. Back then, sound was recorded into things like wax, resin, paper and metal. The paper recordings were played by instrument machines. The most popular was called a player piano, and most of the songs here are recorded from player pianos. Ragtime's uplifting and whimsical style is perfect as a happy and inspiring backdrop for playtime.
The selections in this release were recorded from cylinders, 78 rpm records and player pianos by tomrjim and Jonathan Aizen. Zachary Brewster-Geisz recorded "Maple Leaf Rag" using orchestra software.
Please Note: Track 8, "Pine Apple Rag," was replaced 2017-03-06 when we learned that the original one we shared was, in fact, a studio performance. The current track is a piano roll recording.
The Frog Legs CD is brought to you by Kazoomzoom.com, the world's first netlabel for kids. For more information, please visit us on the web at kazoomzoom.com.
